“Excelllent standard of food and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Beautifully redecorated surroundings and very pleasant location.

The food is high quality chinese cuisine and nice served by very efficient and polite staff. The food is not cheap but it is very good quality. consideration need to be made if you are going for an evening meal as it is somewhat out of the way and you will need to book a taxi, designate a driver or go not expecting to drink much, especially as the Police HQ is right next door!! but please don't let this put you off give them a try you won't be disappointed. They also do deliveries free within 3 miles radius at a reduced rate of 20% off the menu price and takeaways which is also worth knowing.

“Excellent chinese cuisine with perfect service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

I travelled all the way from Southampton to try this restaurant out with my boyfriend as I have heard excellent reviews about Chef da China from friends and family. The drive was well worth it!

The food was excellent, served in good quantities and the service was incredible! Staff there were so friendly and welcoming.

The only down side of this restaurant is that it's so far for us to travel for just a dinner, but if you want good food, then sacrifices need to be made. Defiantly will be visiting again!

“Once you are inside you don't care about the location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Because the food is so good, and the service friendly, and the prices so reasonable you tend to forget the slightly odd location.

I don't know why I call it odd, it is not unusual to drive to restaurants, but somehow to travel halfway along the Ferndown by-pass, to enter a quasi rural environment, then find yourself in a golf club precinct, next door to a police HQ does seem, well, different. For the first time at least.

Don't let any of that deter you, if you enjoy Chinese cuisine, you'll enjoy the menu here.
